Review: GoodReads Challenge 2016

2016 hasn’t been a good year for reading. I read only 5 books this year and only reviewed 4. Book 1 of 2016 was lucky to get it’s own full post.

Book 2 of 2016

The thing about jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

It’s so easy to have grief takeover your life and think that you are the only one going through a loss and this is how Suzy felt in this novel. Not only did she become obsessed with jellyfish but she blamed herself for her friend Franny’s death. Suzy had a serious amount of resolve something I personally lack. She resolved not to speak and succeeded for 5 months much to her family’s dismay. This novel also raises awareness on the ever-growing jellyfish population due to the extreme pollution of the oceans. It amazes me that a particular species can thrive during such difficult times. It was a light but informative read.

Event: Writers Bloc @ Skoobs

Once a month my favourite book store Skoobs holds the writers bloc where poets come together and share their craft. I found this event on Facebook yesterday and decided to attend. I had never been to a poetry reading session before so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  It’s great to see Skoobs giving young people the platform to bring their poetry, art , music and books. The writer’s bloc was organised by Calen who circulated the bookstore welcoming everyone before the show started. The topic was DREAMS.
